1st ride with new clipless pedals; 1st fall with new clipless pedals
Well I picked up my new shoes and clipless pedals today and cut out of work a little early so I could try them out before it got dark.
I got a pair of Scott Pro Road shoes and Speedplay Light Action pedals. I got in and out of them pretty easy on the trainer when they were making sure they were dialed in. I even got in and out of them several times during the ride, but when you forget you are wearing them it is hard to get out of them.
I was on a local MUP and saw a guy I knew and hadn't talked to in a while. I was so excited to see him that I forgot I had my new pedals on and over I went. It wasn't too bad, just a little blood on the knee.
The guy I ran into said he fell over in front of sorority girls, so I guess this was preferable.
I really enjoyed the ride with the shoes though. Much better than the sketchers I was wearing. I am looking forward to a longer ride to really test the out.
Hope my falling over story brightens your day :p
